a discussion and i don't want to tune into the fox news channel and see a tragedy occur like this again. unfortunately, joe biden said yesterday, if it only saves one life. if it only saves one life we could eliminate cars right now and in the next 15 minutes we'll be saving livelies. we could eliminate knives in people's home and hammers and blunt objects of any kind, and that standard doesn't exist. let me ask specifically, was any discussion made about the possibility of putting retired police officers, armed guards in schools? did that come up? >> no. >> sean: mental health issues, did that come up? >> the mental health issues did come up and i think that's one thing we all agree upon. i want to point out, sean, if i may, when you listen to the talk that's going on right now, the discussions, a lot of people on both sides are saying at that we want to make sure that the people who shouldn't have guns don't have access to guns. and i think that that's something that we all agree upon. what's interesting is that the gun control act already has provisions in it that prevent that from h
, in fact, take on their pet pork barrel projects, even though the pentagon has said we don't want those programs. we don't want those airplanes. congress, instead, votes -- goes ahead and votes for it because it means money and votes back home for many members of congress. so i think that ultimately will be the biggest challenge for secretary of defense chuck hagel if, in fact, he is confirmed, tamron. >> you took issue with what first read pointed out, which is the politics which is what i was starting out the conversation with you regarding, the politics of this, when you have general mcchrystal and we'll play him later today on the "today" show this morning talking about a disconnect between the generals and those leaders of the military and the white house particularly in afghanistan. so it's not asking you to delve in to the politics but face it, it is political. >> reporter: well, you know, the trust between the u.s. military leadership and the civilian leadership is always a very delicate balance. you don't find -- and i guess if you want to strictly define the word politics, the

with that fact, will you? it's his job to defend this country. and he's done a pretty good job of doing it, don't you think? well, the commander in chief said today he wants a former vietnam enlisted guy to be his secretary of defense, a guy who can't walk through an airport metal detector and not get reminded of the shrapnel he took in that sad but heroic american war. the president wants chuck hagel in that post because he thinks like him and has proven he's got the brains to protect this country. hagel long ago proved he's got the heart. don't you think? i don't hate the people trying to stop the president from picking this guy for the job he needs done at the pentagon, but i do recognize their tactics. they're the same ones they used to push the war in iraq. they say they don't like something he said hagel did 14 years ago about a gay man being put up for ambassador. i don't like it either, but, a, it was 14 years ago, and, b, i don't think it's got anything to do with why the hawks are opposing him. since when is the right wing of this country is caring for gay rights? as bill clinton woul
don't know just yet. it is familiart that there would be a changing of the guards between a first and second term. as it goes in churmz of steven chuit remains to be seen. some names would be byron dorgen, the democrat from north dakota. governor of the state of washington as well as jennifer gran. we know of one likely departure that we should hear about. that is a name not familiar to a lot of americans. she served as a deputy chief of staff to the president. it is likely that she is going to leave. there has been a lot of conversation about the number of women that have surrounded the president in this new cabinet. the last four positions we have seen were all men. nancy's name was not thrown around yet and some people are saying more women's names should have been considered. >> peter alexander, thank you so much and we will be stopping back with you to talk about immigration. >>> with chuck hagel's nomination looking like a tough one powell had this to say on "meet the press" this morning. >> i think he will do a great job as secretary of defense. i think all of these issues
by bringing dr. king's bible to this inauguration. even if you choose not to be ininvolved, at least don't be ungrateful. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton, "hardball" starts right now. >> hi noon on gun control. let's play "hardball." >>> let me start with this, new school shooting in california that's left a 16-year-old in critical condition. the national rifle association meeting with vice president's task force today cried when he called restrictions on lawful gun owners, tax-paying, working hard mirns and even being honest have to do with this country's failure to keep fast-firing, high capacity guns from the hands of the mentally or emotionally disturbed. if we can't do that woult arousing the call to arms the nra. those who want to keep the scariest guns from the scariest people? or those who want to make it easy as possible for the scariest people to get the scariest guns. what side are you on, mr. and mrs. america? we begin with governor dan maloy of connecticut. governor, thank you so much. >> talk about it, what it means to be the governor of a state that saw the newtown ho
and by and large they are the event to own. you don't want to invent the farm. >> and john layfield. sunny and happy in bermuda, final thought. >> it is great in bermuda. we need tourist. i agree with johnathon. >> thank you so much. that's it for the cost of freedom block today. thank you for being here. we'll see you on fox. have a great weekend and stay warm and please don't get sick . th flu has now reached epidemic porportion and practically the entire country is in the red. elderly and children are most vulnerable . the centers for disease control and prevention reports that as of right now. 20 children have died from the flu or complications as a result of the flu. i am uma, this is american's news headquarters live from the nation's capitol. the flu virus is spreading across the nation and with the flu on the rise, so is the demand for the vaccine. new york governor declared a state of emergency. we have the latest on the situation. anna, what can we tell us. >> it is a epidemkick and the dreaded flu season started in december . some places in the country. vaccine shortages, the si
with a group of pennsylvania deer hunters. if you don't believe me, go see the movie, "deer hunter." it's a classic. so i'm confident closing the gun show loophole, gun safety and doing something about those high-capacity gun clips. it's going to be something reasonable hunters and second amendment fighters will find sensible. the more people have a say in writing the law, the better the law, the fewer the people, the worse the law. big corporations, for example, shouldn't write corporate fax law. and gun owners shouldn't be the only people involved in gun law. anybody can be shot by a gun, killed by a gun and they all ought to have a say. all of us should make gun law, not just the gun people. so let's go at it and please don't, please don't lose interest. this is a test of strength. keep your grip on this gun safety issue. the other side is still into keeping theirs, you know, with their cold, dead hands. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris: and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the v
will not negotiate over whether to raise the debt limit. why don't you believe him? >> well, i don't believe him for sort of practical reasons and partly for the history of his negotiating style. the practical reason is we have a couple of things coming up that he is clearly going to negotiate over, one of which is the sequester, the automatic spending cuts that they delayed for two months when they did the fiscal cliff deal. that is going to expire late february and early march. it is hard for them to say we are going to negotiate but don't call it a debt ceiling negotiation. we'll just call it a sequester negotiation. i think that is a difference without a distinction. i think what the president demonstrated in the end of the fiscal cliff negotiation and a couple of previous negotiations is he is a guy who wants a deal even when he is holding all the cards as he was in the fiscal cliff negotiation. he is not a guy who wants to tempt fate. he doesn't like chaos. he wants to get a deal. he wants both sides leaving the table thinking they got something. he wants to prove that washington can work.
people. so let's go at it and please don't, please don't lose interest. this is a test of strength. keep your grip on this gun safety issue. the other side is still into keeping theirs, you know, with their cold, dead hands. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris: and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the vice president will see you now. today, at the white house, we've got the latest evidence the obama team is serious about changing the way we handle guns in this country. ahead of today's key meeting, the nra vice president -- ahead of today's meeting with the nra, vice president biden assured the country, action is on its way. >> there's got to be some common ground here to not solve any problem, but to diminish the probability of what we've seen in these mass shootings. >> there's a real tight window to do this. i've committed to him. i could have these recommendations to him by tuesday. >> recommendations hit the president's desk in five days. now is the time to get this done. the vice
us that change can come if you don't give up. that is the conviction we must carry now in our hearts. >> this week, we learned that the inaugural prayer will be delivered by medgar evars. these are powerful similar bombs, strong statements about america's struggle towards justice. we should all remember when we see the advancements of african americans or latinos or women or whomever have been shut out and had doors closed. those doors will open because others pay the price, others sacrifice, yes, some even gave their lives. we must never forget that it was not your abilities alone, but it was those that paid a price. so that your abilities would even be considered. that's a potent message the president does by bringing dr. king's bible to this inauguration. even if you choose not to be ininvolved, at least don't be ungrateful. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton, "hardball" starts right now. >> hi noon on gun control. let's play "hardball." >>> let me start with this, new school shooting in california that's left a 16-year-old in critical condition. the national rifle associ
through the its history. >> bill: just shut up and pay. all right? don't be asking for anything, just pay. it's mr. obama's way or the highway. again, he could use an executive order to ignore the debt ceiling and i will not be surprised if he does. so, what we have here is not a failure to communicate as they once said in the movie cool hand lou. but a president who believes he can do what he wants to do with little accountability. he has already signed executive order changing immigration rules. that was done in the middle of the night. few even know about it if this continues there will be a constitutional crisis in america. unfortunately we the people are slow to understand what's actually happening here. there is no collaboration going none washington right. >> now the president is not able to persuade republicans to see it his way. now he ♪ even trying to do that mr. obama is hell bent on changing the u.s.a. and, in his mind, no one is going to stop him. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. opposing point of view, joining us from los angeles, adam winkler constitutional
take executive action. they are giving you an f rating with no sign of support from you. i don't think you mind that. >> no. >> would you mind executive action from the white house and the president? >> first of all, i don't know and it hasn't been specified what the vice president is talking about, but i welcome executive action and the president has executive power to take actions in these areas. i don't know what they specifically are and obviously we will look at that, but i welcome executive action in order to move quickly on the issues that will make a difference in the debate. >> to your point, peter alexander and the team of reporter who is cover the white house asking for more specifics on that. but it would likely point to what we have seen from the fiscal debate in congress. gridlock. you have mitch mcconnell on the sunday morning program saying the priority for congress are fiscal issues or gun control would be a back burner issue. whatever he meant by that point to way too many times in congress on big issues which is a gridlock. >> we shouldn't slow down and there shouldn
heated extremes. >> i don't think the federal government has any business having a list of law abiding citizens who choose to exercise their right to keep and bear arms. >> but for vice president joe biden, an assault weapons ban is just the beginning. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. today president obama nominated a uniquely qualified candidate to be secretary of defense. former senator chuck hagel, republican out of nebraska, puts country over party, and is a true independent, an independent thinker who will speak his mind. maybe that's why the republicans are crying foul. president obama nominated senator hagel despite early attempts by hagel critics to sideline the nomination. the president praised hagel for his impressive credentials. >> he is an american patriot. he enlisted in the army and volunteered for vietnam. as a young private and then a sergeant, he served with honor alongside his own brother. when chuck was hit by shrapnel, his brother saved him. when his brother was injured by a mine, chuck risked his life to pull him to safety. >> and t
disappoint a lot of folks. >> well you know what they say, if at first you don't succeed. >> >> today, republican governor chris christie told matt lauer that the republican party is in trouble. >> but are you happy with the course of the republican party right now? do you think it is head understand the right direction? >> we have lost two national elections, i would say no. we're in politics to win, we need to think about doing something different. >> today, governor chris christie appeared on five morning shows and is also on the cover of this week's issue "time magazine." today, the governor gave the republicans this advice. >> what are you getting right that republicans in washington, d.c. are getting so wrong? what don't they get? >> we're compromising when we need to. i'm in divided government. i have a democratic senate and democratic assembly. so what that means is, i'm not going to get everything i want. >> here is what chris christie thinks of the tea party. >> i don't think they have had too much influence, and i think there is a lot of things -- >> you don't think that is
nobody should have a machine gun. guess what, people don't get killed anymore with machine guns. we're not talking about incidences with hand grenades. we can make practical decisions. we can pass practical laws where most people would agree let's get that done. let's get rid of these magazines. no one should be able to buy any guns in america without a background check. it's pretty simple stuff. you know, we do background checks for just about everything. we don't with dough to for everyone purchase of a gun. >> who is coming at you when you make these statements? >> my state is pretty aggressive. but here is a big problem for us. you know, people from connecticut buy guns in our center cities, inner cities, that have been transported here having been purchased at gun shows where there's no background check and very little record keeping in places like florida and virginia and they work their way up 95, as they do, by the way, go right through d.c. and some of them jump off there as well. let's just close this. let's decide that, you know, some people should have guns and some peop
permanently. why don't they just close it? our idea is i don't think it is over. we have given a new proposed code yesterday that they just announced and with the new proposed code we are in violation and the garden will once again get a new violation. i don't know. gerri: and somebody told me i could not grow tomatoes? i would put up a sting. are people coming to you? saying this is bad? >> everybody in the neighborhood loves our vegetable garden. neighbors have broccoli and lemon grass. they are upset we have to remove it. >> been neighbors little girls planted the seeds and pick the fruit and play with the chicken. it is as much of educational outreach and increase our interaction with our community 100 fold. this is the second season. this has brought us closer to our community. gerri: if you cannot grow a vegetable garden, i do you have any rights at all how to use your own property that you pay for? >> we pay taxes we have owned the land 20 years. it is our property. when they take our garden, what is next? >> asserts with food they slowly take away everything. it is not a hobby. gerri:
's beyond the mainstream or something we don't know about yet. >> it could be one or the other. that's why the confirmation hearings are going to be vitally important. right now as you said at the top of the show, both sides, the pro-hagel people and anti-hagel people are engaged in a bit of a campaign to sort of set of narrative for who this person could be as secretary of defense. before he sits before the confirmation hearings and answer questions, tough questions from democrats and republicans alike, on all of these issues from his support of israel to his criticisms of the iraq war, the afghanistan war, the -- his unwillingness to sign that letter designating hamas as a terrorist organization, these are all questions he's going to have to answer and how he answers them could very well determine whether he's confirmed or not. >> well, he started to answer them a little bit. he did an interview with his hometown paper and said record is being distorted. i didn't sign on to certain resolutions in letters because they were counter productive and didn't solve a problem. if he's going to de
. now, the president has said initially, i want this done in january. i want it on my desk and i don't want a lot of delay, but now there's word from capitol hill, there are additional reasons to push this and fast. so, and those are what? >> well, the what is currently congress is in the process of being overloaded. the president has controversial nominees for key posts, particularly chuck hagel, that he's going to have to deal with for secretary of defense. we have the budget, we have the debt ceiling looming. we have the legislation that's basically funding the government in the be absence of a budget. we have all of these things that are coming up. the government shutdown clock is already running and all of this stuff is going on. jamming firearms legislation, anything that addresses gun control, which remains restrictions on guns remain politically unpopular, people are-- feel good about restricting access for the mentally ill, america remains mostly, and it remains daunting. >> megyn: initially we were told they were looking at everything. am some people are looking at things o
a chance to speak for himself. why all the prejudging, i don't know. >> the senate officially rejected nine cabinet nominations since 1834. the last cabinet nominee rejected by the senate was john tower, nominee for secretary of defense in 1989. >>steve: we also know he was for the iraq war but then was against the iraq war, and then said the surge would never work. then when it worked, he never admitted that it worked. >> that's right. he's been on the intelligence advisory committee of the president and the president feels very close to him. brian. >>brian: all right. thank you very much. meanwhile, let's talk a little bit about this. it's a little rehash of the fiscal cliff. shortly after that was actually passed, our friend steven moore from the "wall street journal" sat down with john boehner, speaker of the house, who was shortly -- after he sat down -- before reelected. john boehner revealed essentially the president's mind-set. john boehner kept talking about, look, mr. president, we've got a spending problem in this country. and the president said we don't have a spending problem.
million to don trump. well, dond trump has responded. with it came trump's birth certificate. and there it is, in all of its glory, donald john trump, the date, june 14th, 1946. and here's the big one. he's the son of fred trump, not the o rang tang? or is he? and by the way, donald, where is your long form birth certificate? thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> out of the way. obama's coming. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. i think we're looking at a new barack obama. you know the expression let reagan be reagan. i think we're seeing barack obama be barack obama. an in your face challenge to the right wing. he's putting in a guy who knows the lessons of vietnam and iraq and putting him out front, making him his point man as he goes into the war of hawkish republicans who count the months between wars as an unwanted time-out. who like nothing more than the next war to fight. meet barack obama two. he's going to run the way he believes to do it. i like it. i think t
in washington, d.c.? >> well, i don't want to get into a debate with lindsey who i happen to be a huge fan of. i think he's one of the strongest members of the senate. but the president has chosen chuck hagel or is, i guess, going to choose chuck hagel. and chuck hagel isn't going to be working for himself. he's not going to be freelancing as a senator as he was when he made these misstatements which i suspect have upset senator graham and other members of the senate who might be concerned about some of the things he said in the past. he'll be working for the president. when working for the president you follow the president's policies. i don't see this prior statement as being -- first off, they may -- they may have been wrong. he may have made some statements which were inappropriate, as he did. but everybody does, i guess. and now he's going to be working for the president. and carrying the president's policies forward. i think he'll probably carry them forward rather effectively. the thing i like about chuck, and i've known him for a long time. we had our differences when we were in the sena
finale, those who don't follow the game might ask for a timeout for an explanation. fortunately for them, our bill geist will be here to help. >> reporter: friends do you find that people at this time of year always treat you like you're invisible or some sort of space alien just because you don't know football? >> this is our goal line. we have four downs right? >> reporter: attend a free crash course for football dummies later on sunday morning. >> we can either run it or pass it for two. >> reporter: you'll be amazed at the results. so will your family, friends and coworkers. >> this is called a helmet. and the helmet fits on your head. >> osgood: rit a braver looks at the past and future of exploration by "national geographic." steve hartman shows us snow flakes that comfort and heel. faith salie struggles to create the perfect computer password and more. but first here are the headlines for this sunday morning the 13th of january 2013. today is the first anniversary of the giant cruise ship cost a concordia going aground off the rocks off tuscany. there was a mass and moments of sil
